It is once again time for the monthly newsletter from Winds of Fury RPG Forum, your (hopefully) favourite place to RP Dragonriders of Pern. Although February was a little shorter month we are still committed to pass on all the fun stuff happening on the forum, out of character and in character.
In February Tikka, katemac and Firecat joined us. We welcome you aboard and hope you'll have a lot of fun with us. Any great ideas, comments, concepts for new characters are always welcome not only for these guys but also those of you already members of old!
As the first issue of OOC news, SRness has been pushing for a spring cleaning on the forum. So Archives sub-forum was added, for old and finished character searches, plot and RP requests, announcements, whatnot.
She also placed two very handy topics into the Records Room: 1) Upcoming events of things about to happen in the future that you, too, can add to by entering your events that you want people to take part of. Say your character has a birthday coming up, another's green dragon is rising, whatever finds your fancy! So take advantage of it. 2) Ongoing events of things happening right now, relative to our timeline. Like with upcoming events, you can also update the ongoing events topic with an event of your own so do so and have fun with it.
Also the ever so popular Drudge Report(the Enkalan Drudge Grapevine) has been moved there and is now officially a part of our in character play. Want to share juicy gossip about your own character or someone else's? Pick up a drudge and have them tell it as it is! You can find the DR here
Our activity check has finished. Everyone not responding to it has had their characters set inactive. While it's incredibly sad, never fear! You may have them revived by returning and simply asking either myself or SRness to make the necessary changes for you. Remember, we don't want to lose good players and characters and would love to have any that have been set inactive back so if you have any doubts of our willingness to do so, don't! We'd be happy to. The activity checks are good for counting our chicks in order to plan for the next part of Enkalan story.
There has also been some discussion about the timeline and how we should move our time ICly forward. Please feel free to chime in at http://www.dancingshadows.net/Windfury/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=979
Also, SRness solved the cake vs pie problem. Read all about it here: http://www.dancingshadows.net/Windfury/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=961 It's pure magic.

The following lovely characters were created in February: Aering and Arya. A Journeywoman Harper and a Green Weyrling! A good harvest if I say so myself and... I really shouldn't be saying it like this...
As the highly anticipated Valentine's Day event approached, the veil was lifted from what this event was to be and many were surprised! It was a Bad Dream scenario, an alternate universe to our alternate universe game where all the pairings and all the singles(that signed up) were fixed up in the wrong way and completely differently and all according to the evil admin's wicked designs. Valentine Day's events' scenes are all marked with [VD] in title for easy spotting so when you read them... it's really a bad dream someone's having. Or maybe a good dream, depending on their situation in their present timeline. I hope this gives people ideas, inspires them and quite possibly encourages more love into the air at Enkala Weyr!
Winter is tough for the Weyr and it lasts a long time - from the middle of the 11th Month into the 3rd. But now some sunshine is finally seen and all those shivering Istans may hope for the spring to arrive soon. They simply haven't embraced the Enkalan way of spending the winter yet *winks*
Now to get your thoughts out of the gutter, is our traditional question and answers column with Uncle T, this time, who has taken the time off his busy schedule of... well, whatever he was doing and answered a troubled greenrider.
"Dear Uncle T, I really want a baby, but I also want to make a career in this Weyr. Career of baby... what do I do?
Torn Female Greenrider,
Consider this: If dragonriders didn't have children before careers who will the next generation of Dragons impress? We simply can't rely on sole holdbred stock for candidates. So with eye on the future of the Weyr, everyone can benefit from you having a child. There are other people, MEN, who can make the careers the Weyr needs.
Do your duty and don't feel bad about,
As a last note and a bit of a heads up to everyone: In the 3rd Month there will be a Gather held in Enkala Weyr's Gathering Hall(it is still too cold outside) to celebrate the founding of Enkala Hold so don't miss the festivities and take part of the fun. When Enkala Hold will actually be finished and opened is still a mystery but those Holders, they can surprise you like this. One day there is nothing and the next... a whole new Hold in the shadow of the troublemaker Weyr!
Thank you for reading and I hope to see you all on Winds of Fury Forum.
